Dita Von Teese Was Supposed To Be Dita Von Treese

Heather Renee Sweet is Dita Von Teese’s birth name, but how did she come up with her moniker that’s perfect for burlesque? Well, back when she was just a mere 19-year-old stripper, she started going by the name Dita, which she adopted after watching a silent film. When Dita posed for Playboy in the mid-’90s she had to give them a last name to print. She and her friends searched the phone book under Von and found Von Treese. But the magazine printed Von Teese by accident (maybe not?), and the rest is history. [Socialite Life]
